You walk, you stroll, you love, you grow How the city effects you, you never know Meeting people and making friends A new adventure around each bend A place for old and new love too Seeing couples holding hands, its true The city of love, a city of passion Where to next, only you can fashion Sitting by a fountain, resting on the stairs With this city I am having an affair Love some parts, also hate others Its a city of artists, its a wonder! So much inspiration in one place A new day and adventure, its the way With inspiration and love in the air Each moment you will cherish and care
Kids are kids they say, its true
It seems they make me crazy too
All the times they misbehave
It’s just attention that they crave
Attention good or bad they’ll take
From morning to night – I need a break!
At 5 in the morning they wake me
Only 6 hours sleep they need
What happened to all the naps in day
Those stages of sleep are far away
Each day they test me on another thing
My heart melts – did I hear them sing?
The ups and downs of parenthood
not every day is going to be good
Today is quiet as they watch cartoons
The silence will be broken again soon
Nothing can make it go away
Water, coffee or even Earl Grey
I can’t focus, I can’t think
I can’t eat, I can barely drink
Finally the headache begins to dull
I can’t believe it’s finally done
I wasted days fighting the pain
Then suddenly you just go away
Another day you will return
For now I enjoy a head without hurt
From the desert to the forest with the evergreen trees
A trip from coast to coast and I know where I’ll be
To the lake with the water splashing on the dock
The dirt road winds ’round the lake to walk
A trip so long by road, yet short by plane
Back to a place I grew up – so far, far away
Not just in miles but in years gone by
I long for the cool crisp air of night
The lake was always my second home you know
I traveled the world, always on the go
Not sure how I traveled – car, plane or boat
I am ready to return to the cabin down the road
Camp is a place in my heart and soul
It made my childhood memories like gold
I long for evenings sitting on the porch
The barbecue over and marshmallows scorched
A place still seen through my child’s eye
It looks so different as a grown-up, but why?
What is a wedding but a union of two.
A day for commitment, our love is true.
Together we come on this special day.
Like everything else, we do it our way.
From rough beginnings those early days.
Our passion ran strong like fire ablaze.
Our hearts filled with love, each day it grew.
Now we navigate life like true partners do.
Today we stand here as true soulmates.
Finding your other half is truly great.
Anyone who meets us can clearly see.
Eran, Stacey, Tucker and Paige are a family!
A day of new beginnings, the next chapter of life.
We will leave here married – husband and wife.
A pink pen writes
Like any other pen
I hold it tight
And write words again
Words in colors
Can you see meaning?
Orange of the sun
Does the ocean look green?
Words in all shades
Black, blue, red, and pink
Words shine on a page
Are they different you think?
Paige my little girl
She can’t go to sleep tonight
The moon must be full
The sunrise makes the sky so bright
It takes away the deep dark night
All the birds singing and squawking
Should I just be sitting or walking?
The day is beginning the day is near
The buzz of activity of day is here
The water of the lake is barely moving
No ripples – just seeing it is soothing
The sky above is blue and clear
If there’s a cloud, it isn’t here
A day to live, to enjoy, to breathe
My smile is so big you can see my teeth
I am happy with this calm of morning
Tomorrow I fly home, I’ll be soaring
Returning to my home, returning to my love
I feel the warmth of the sun above
The warmth is from the inside out
I will be happy to go home, no doubt
One red Thinkpad for a family,
We have one computer but we need three.
The kids like games, I like Netflix
The noisy game music – it makes me sick!
So many electronic devices to cruise
Why a laptop everyone has to choose?
Tablet, Kindle, Droid we have,
but the old laptop is what they grab!
How am I to get anything done?
I can’t pay my bills or order from Amazon.
They say that laptops are going away
In my house it is the device to play!
With a bonus from work or with money from the sky
What can I see? More devices in my eye.
My laptop I bought for writing blogs
I’m resorting to paper, like an old ships log.
Today we time each person’s 30 minute turn
Don’t touch that timer, I got more time to burn!
Scheduling time to use an electronic device?
Instead we should all play Sorry! – that would be nice.
Without my brain I would be lost
Without a compass time can cost
Wandering through the willow trees
Going someplace, the place to be
Away I go, stepping toward that place
The place in which my dreams are made
The brain is the center, the brain is the core
Be free, be free, just open the door
A walk of opportunity a place for the brain
The brain will take you and show the way
Once in a while I keep wondering why
I look up, and up, and up to the sky
How will I get to where I want to go?
Without compass or stars, how will I know?
Have faith and follow your heart I say
Your heart, it knows, so follow it today.
